I honestly see 2018 being the year of retirements.

The Bella’s will retire after a summer comeback and a one off Rumble appearance.

Natalya will finally retire.

Tamina will get injured again and retire.

Naomi will sadly be traded to Raw.

Total Divas will air it’s last seasons I see them rushing through to season 10.

Ruby and Sarah will both flop hard.

Sonya will be a breakout star used for publicity because of her sexuality because this is the Wwe after all.

Liv will be a breakout star with moderate success.

Becky will still be stagnant because of creative.

Carmella will enjoy a short reign before being traded to Raw and reuniting with Enzo and Cass. 

Bayley will still be offering hugs nobody asked for.

Charlotte will feud with Stephanie or Rhonda I could honestly see both happening.

Paige will become women’s champion once.

Mandy will be pushed similar to Eva but won’t get the heat they want.

Asuka will lose her streak and it will benefit no one.

Dana will get released.

The iconic duo will still be in Nxt.

Ember will flop a career similar to Neville before his heel turn is what I expect for her.

Mickie will be released.

Alicia will still be on Raw flipping between heel and face.

Sasha still won’t get her heel turn.

Alexa will become champion 2 more times after a successful face turn.

Nia still won’t be Kharma.

Honestly it seems like 2018 will be the closing of the diva era I see all of them retiring before the year is over.

All I hope is that Alicia gets drafted to SD and gets her "thank you" reign like Naomi and Natalya did.

I assume Sasha or Bayley (perhaps both) will move to SD as well but they can wait for their title reign.

Hopes

2018 will be Becky's year. After her feud with Alexa she sorta became an after thought when in reality she needs to be the centerpiece in the division. A good babyface running the division gives us a chance to see strong heels go against her. Heels running things is so overdone. We've seen it with Aj, Nikki, Charlotte and Alexa. It's time we get a break from that

Carmella gets drafted to Raw. Smackdown isn't really getting her over, tbh. The switch to Raw elevated Alexa tremendously, so I think the same can happen for her as well

Alexa goes back to being a manager. Tbh she's done all there is in a wrestling role. Let her work with the men or something. It'll keep her relevant and she can help get some stars over the way she did Blake and Murphy (who have 0 charisma). 

The Iconic Duo get called up. Unless they're getting a title run there's really no need to keep them down there in NXT :uhh:. Both have perfected their character and are really good wrestlers

Lana gets more screen time. They really need to commit to getting her tv time either as a wrestler or a manager. Put her back with Rusev, give Tamina a push and make Lana her mouthpiece. She's too charismatic to be doing nothing

Mickie gets a title run. Honestly, her promo work during her feud with Alexa really showed how great she really is as a mic worker and her wrestling is still as good as it was back during her era. I feel she deserves more than just being another Natalya/Alicia enhancement talent

Sasha successfully defends a title. Honestly, let her get a long run :uhh:. Anytime she wins a title now I don't care anymore because I already know they're gonna have her drop it afterwards 

 

Predictions

More bad booking :aj:

Predictions
- Ronda Rousey will win the Women's Royal Rumble. Depending on the viral impressions and sports media coverage her debut gets, she will either A) have a one-off at 'Mania and do ambassador work afterward or B) sign a part-time deal and win the SmackDown Women's Championship from Charlotte.
- If the latter happens, SmackDown will serve a lite Ruthless Aggression mixed with SD '16 tea by developing multiple women's feuds not centered around the title to fill the gap and build characters.
- Paige (if healthy) will win this year's Miss Money in the Bank match, avoiding any bumps involving a ladder at all costs.
- Carmella will cash in MITB on the RAW Women's Champion on the night of the Superstar Shakeup/WWE Draft.
- Alexa Bliss will turn face, but go titleless after losing the RAW Women's Championship.
- Asuka's streak being broken will fuel a heel turn for either Bayley or Sasha Banks.
- The Riott Squad will dissolve in the spring; Absolution will last the year if Paige can remain healthy.
- Alicia Fox will have a career resurgence in NXT and have a slayful match on a Takeover with either Ember Moon, Bianca Belair or Kairi Sane.
- The Bella Twins will return on SmackDown Live and feud with The Iconic Duo.
- Women's Tag Team Championships will be introduced in the summer with a tournament. The likes of Charlotte/Becky, Bayley/Sasha, Alexa/Nia, The Bellas, The Iconic Duo and whatever remnants of previously made alliances (Lana/Tamina, Dandy, Riott Squad) will compete.
- Ember Moon, Shayna Baszler and Zelina Vega (as a valet) will also be called up later in the year.
- Dana Brooke and Tamina released. Possibly one of the new call-ups as well if they do not impress by year's end.

Hopes
- Someone who isn't Ronda or Asuka win the Royal Rumble.
- LayCool return for a one-off in the women's tag team title tournament. :crying: 
- Zelina competes in the ring more.
- Paige finds a new man who respects her/doesn't take advantage of her. :crying: 
- Scarlett Bordeaux gets signed to NXT after slaying her WOH/Stardom cameos. :crying:
